Extending for 7 km, which makes it the longest village in Europe, Beatenberg is situated high above Lake Thun and is known as the sun terrace of the Alps. Although it has agricultural leanings, this little place is mainly a favourite of nature-lovers. It offers a unique panorama of the three Alpine peaks, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, and of Lake Thun. The famous international tourist city of Interlaken is only 10 km away, making it an ideal starting point for excursions. The Niederhorn (1950m) is Beatenberg’s very own mountain and it can be accessed by cable car from the village. In winter, it is usually possible to ski on both this mountain and on the Hohwald 5 km away, but the start of an extensive area with guaranteed snow for winter sports is only an hour’s drive from here. Beatenberg is a very family-friendly village and certainly not grandiose. Lovers of all sports, whether they are hikers or hang-gliding enthusiasts, golfers or climbers will find their heart’s desire close to this lovely village.
